Specifications of Dual Wire Myograph System 420A:
The Dual Wire Myograph Systems allow simultaneous, independent testing of two vessels with diameters of 30 m to 3 mm. The vessels are mounted as ring preparations by threading them over two parallel stainless steel wires and securing the wires to two supports or "jaws". On the 420A Dual Wire Myograph System one support is attached to a precision micrometer, allowing manual control of vessel circumference and stretch. On the the support is attached to a linear, motor-driven micrometer, allowing automated control of vessel circumference and stretch. The other support on both the 420A is attached to a force transducer for measurements of force/tension development. The preparation is mounted in a heated, 10 ml acid-resistant stainless steel chamber, which can be covered by a lid with ports for rapid suction/draining, refilling and oxygen supply.
